My figs are starting to leaf out so spring must be trying to arrive in southeast Indiana. That means itâ€™s time to start planting, so Iâ€™m off to visit McCabeâ€™s Greenhouse & Floral, 1066 W Eads Pkwy in Lawrenceburg.
This family owned and operated business began in 1974 on the family farm and in 1978, moved to the present location in Lawrenceburg. This is your â€œgo toâ€ place for bedding plants, grown in their own greenhouses behind the retail store. In addition to the huge selection of bedding plants, hanging baskets, herbs and more, McCabeâ€™s offers a full garden center and floral department. The retail store is filled with beautiful and colorful displays of garden/home accessories and gifts for the garden lover.
What a surprise to find out that McCabeâ€™s makes its own fudge! There are 15-20 varieties of fudge, all created in McCabeâ€™s new fudge kitchen. Doesnâ€™t everyone want a fudge kitchen? My rationale - youâ€™re going to be expending all those calories gardening, it only makes sense to bring home a little gourmet fudge. Dark Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt â€“ Iâ€™ve already been back for more!
McCabeâ€™s also offers a variety of family friendly classes and workshops during the year. The gift shop is now stocking Illustrated Faith products and Bible Journaling classes are scheduled for the last Wednesday of the month. There are Mommy & Me classes in March where the kids learn about gardening and plant a hanging basket that McCabeâ€™s will care for it until itâ€™s ready for Motherâ€™s Day. Kids love (and who wouldn't?) theÂ fudge-dipped apple workshops in November & December. Last year, Fairy Garden and Make & Take a Porch Pot classes were big hits. Classes aren't just for kids, older "kids" willÂ enjoy them, too.
Find all the latest information for this yearâ€™s classesÂ on McCabe's FacebookÂ pageÂ or give them a call at 812-537-4525. If you have a group of friends, you can call to make arrangements for private classes or checkout Tour Southeast Indiana for your group options.
